The Stories We Live – CHD

This week has been a roller coaster of emotions…Last Friday, during my “Yes Day”, I spent some time reflecting on what’s been going on for us recently and ended up writing for this week’s blog. Below is what I wrote one week ago. I find the days leading up to one of Kane’s big medicalContinue reading “The Stories We Live – CHD”

This is Us – CHD

This week, Kane was at the Stollery Children’s Hospital two different times for his bi-annual cardiology appointment. On Monday, Harrison took Kane for his echo and then on Thursday I took him back again for his ECG and his appointment with his cardiologist. There are so many things I love about the Stollery. My favouriteContinue reading “This is Us – CHD”

I See You, Momma

Recently, I had an hour of time before a shoot where my kids were being cared for and I was free to sit in a coffee shop and catch up on Click magazine. In the January/February issue, there was an article by Me Ra Koh titled, I See You. There were so may things sheContinue reading “I See You, Momma”

Moments that Matter – Hospital Life

It should come as no surprise that I was more than a little disappointed to be told that I could not take photographs in any space other than the public waiting area when we went for Kane’s MRI. So here is a small slice of what Kane’s MRI experience was like from the point ofContinue reading “Moments that Matter – Hospital Life”

This Week in Pictures – Heart Day

Look I made it in the frame!! Sunday morning I decided since it was my turn to be up with the kiddos that I was going to set up the tripod and capture a little of what our life is like. PS As you can probably tell Kane loves clicking the remote. Mav thinks theContinue reading “This Week in Pictures – Heart Day”

Cecilly's NICU Story

Cecilly’s mom, Mitzi, had a newborn photography session all lined up for mid January 2016. Mitzi, her partner, Sherridan, and their one year-old son, Lincoln, live on a cattle farm outside of Grande Prairie. They were looking forward to meeting their newest arrival and this time around were excited to find out the baby’s gender. They ended upContinue reading “Cecilly's NICU Story”

One Way to Kick-off 2015

So, Maverick had to try and one up his big brother, Kane, by getting admitted to hospital at Christmas, too. His claim to fame is being the first of the time-traveling twins to get an isolation room in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at the Stollery Children’s Hospital. On Sunday, we brought Maverick intoContinue reading “One Way to Kick-off 2015”

My Heart Warrior

I can’t think of a better way to ring in 2014 than by bringing my thirteen month old son, Kane, home from the hospital. We were discharged from the Stollery Children’s Hospital on December 31st, just in time for a New Years celebration! Kane was admitted to the Stollery on Friday, December 27th for openContinue reading “My Heart Warrior”

Voluntography

As many of you know, the beginning of my son Kane’s life involved quite a bit of medical attention. We spent 54 days at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the Royal Alexandra Hospital here in Edmonton. During our time at the NICU, I had hoped to take photos for others who were spendingContinue reading “Voluntography”

Finally, My First Post!

I have wanted to create a photography blog for a while now, but life has a tendency of getting in the way! Having a baby in the house makes me feel like I am never “busy”, but always occupied. My son, Kane, was born in November 2012, 7 weeks early.  In fact, it happened rightContinue reading “Finally, My First Post!”
